Lucky folks have eyes, and a brain to work things out for themselves as to who the perpetrators are - as to the solution, maybe roll out 'flash swat teams' in districts where the 'perpetrators' nest - gotta go on the offensive - send a clear message.

The bay area rapid transport also know as BART. Has been experiencing multiple violent attacks on passengers.
April 29th 40 to 60 teens hold up passengers
May 9th Family Beaten and Robbed by teens
June 30th Passenger Attacked and Robbed
There are videos of these attackers but rather then release them to the public to help identify the suspects (since the police cant seem to find them) BART refuses to because...........racist?
"To release these videos would create a high level of racially insensitive commentary toward the district," management said. "And in addition it would create a racial bias in the riders against minorities on the trains."
Pay no mind to the huge jump in violent crimes on the public transit system you filthy racist you!
45 percent increase in robberies on BART, a strong-arm robbery and beating by a dozen teen perpetrators July 4 weekend, a four-teen attack on June 28, and of course the infamous April 22 “flash mob attack” in which 30-60 teens beat and robbed several passengers.
Yes because the attackers are of a racial minority, we cannot help you stop them because you all are racist. Seriously, when will this racist crap end? I guess as long as people can make money off of racial division it wont. It doesn't matter if your pink, purple, or covered in polka dots, if you are beating and robbing people you are a POS and no one should be helping hide these scum.

You're a bit behind the times here. Over 20 years ago this was prevalent on the London underground, they named it "steaming".
Now being as I don't go to our capital as it's a multi- racial rat hole with British being the minority, I don't know if it's still happening or if they've found a way to curb it. Hopefully some-one from "the smoke" can enlighten me.

There is not a living thing on this Earth, be it plant or animal, that actually evolves BACKWARDS like majority of these people are. Imagine 2-3 generations down the road, if this country continues to let the problem go unchecked as it has been. What we are witnessing was predicted with 100% accuracy 150 years ago by many prominent people.

This is the kind of thing that causes me to believe that this is nothing more than manipulation of the public by the media, and that none of the alleged attacks ever happened in the first place. They're playing mind games with the public. Instigating and distracting. And people are still falling for it, hook, line and sinker.
BART Assistant General Manager Kerry Hamill replied to Allen with a condemnation of local media. "If we were to regularly feed the news media video of crimes on our system that involve minority suspects, particularly when they are minors, we would certainly face questions as to why we were sensationalizing relatively minor crimes and perpetuating false stereotypes in the process," Hamill replied. "My view is that the media's real interest in the videos of youth phone snatching incidents isn't the desire for transparency but rather the pursuit of ratings," Hamill continued. "They know that video of these events will drive clicks to their websites and viewers to their programs because people are motivated by fear."

They don't show the videos because they don't want to scare people off the rails, a case where the corporations profit margin matters more than rider safety.
